Never Trust a Bisexual

Chris Burrous was the anchor of the morning news at KTLA-TV in Los Angeles. Two days after Christmas, he was found dead in a “seedy” motel in suburban Glendale, California. He was 43 years old and left behind a wife and 9-year-old daughter. Chris Burrous was bisexual:

KTLA anchor Chris Burrous died from an overdose of crystal meth while engaging in vigorous sexual activity with a man he met on Grindr.
According to the L.A. County Medical Examiner, Burrous died from methamphetamine toxicity after being found unresponsive in a Glendale motel on December 28. The manner of death is listed as accidental.
According to the death investigation, officials say Burrous worked his shift at KTLA, and then left early for the day complaining he felt ill.
Instead of going home, he set up a meeting with a man at a motel in Glendale for an afternoon of hardcore sex. The two allegedly met on Grindr and had hooked up multiple times in the past.

(Burrous was living a double life, pretending to be the happily married husband, while repeatedly hooking up with guys on Grindr.)

When the companion arrived, Burrous allegedly answered the door fully nude, and had set up the room with “DJ style” lighting, S&M toys, lubrication jelly and a massage bench. The two men allegedly engaged in various forms of sexual activities.

(Among the “various forms of sexual activities” two men might engage in, which one would require “lubrication jelly”?)

At some point during the meeting, 43-year-old Burrous allegedly inserted a “rock” of crystal meth into his body.

(Care to guess the method of insertion? Exactly what you think.)

He then allegedly gave his companion a syringe full of GHB and a bottle of Gatorade. The two became intimate again, and Burrous allegedly used another “rock” of meth before engaging in more sexual activity.

(What a euphemism — “became intimate.”)

The report states Burrous also used “poppers,” an alkyl nitrite inhaled that produces a euphoric effect.
Burrous allegedly told his companion he was feeling fine until the man noticed him making a strange noise, and flipped him over to realize Burrous had vomited inside his S&M mask.

(So, if he “flipped him over” to discover this, we may suppose that Burrows — wearing an “S&M mask,” whatever that means — was face-down while they “became intimate.” Nudge, nudge.)

The man called 911 and began to perform CPR on Burrous until emergency responders arrived. He was transported to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead in the emergency room.

Did the deceased anchorman’s wife know that her husband was getting boned in seedy motels by a dude he met on a gay dating app? Probably not, but was there never any cause for her to suspect that she was married to a man who might be inclined in that direction? Well, you can watch the on-air tribute to Chris Burrous that KTLA-TV did the day after he died and see if his mannerisms, in hindsight, might not have been enough to trigger your “gaydar” alert. I remember after Ted Haggard was “outed” in 2006, going back to watch videos of his TV appearances and thinking, “Wow, how did nobody ever notice how gay this guy is?”

To say that Chris Burrous was “bisexual” is to say, of course, he was really gay, but just didn’t want to admit it. A guy doesn’t die in a cheap motel with drugs, lube, an S&M mask and a guy he met on Grindr unless he was more or less completely gay. How many random hook-ups with how many different partners before his fatal encounter? We don’t know, but the number of such hook-ups was almost certainly greater than zero.
